Spaniard’s Bay council to address flooding

·1 min read

Residents of Simon Place and Ryan’s Road were likely glad to hear the Town of Spaniard’s Bay will be putting money towards addressing flooding concerns in their area.

“Because of the complexity of the issue, we needed engineers to help us come up with a resolution,” said Mayor Paul Brazil during the February 9 meeting of council.

The engineering firm in question is Progressive Engineering, which sent the town a proposal with a staged estimate totalling up to $20,950 concerning the flooding concerns on Simon Place and Ryan’s Road.

Councillor Eric Jewer moved to approve Progressive Engineering to proceed in accordance with the proposal.

Council voted unanimously to approve the motion.
